Alexis Poirier Name: Alexis Poirier
Hometown: Caledonia, ON
Program: Honours Bachelor of Physical and Health Education
Year: 4th

Hello! My name is Alexis Poirier and I am a fourth year Honours Physical and Health Education student at Nipissing University, originally from Caledonia. I chose Nipissing University because of it's high success rate amongst students, the classroom sizes, and the ability to have a professor that knows your name. I've been involved within a lot of school activities such as intramural sports, Kinesiology Games 2015, Homecoming, and I recently got back from an international exchange in Melbourne, Australia. I love travelling, which is why I decided to come to a school many hours away. Nipissing gives me the feeling of a "home away from home" which is what I think most of our students here experience as well. I thoroughly enjoy eating pizza, taking naps and doing yoga. Upon graduating in June from Nipissing, I will be returning to Nipissing September 2017 to continue my education in Teachers College.
